Help me remember an old movie!

I have three of them!

I remember watching a film that involved what I believe to have been American WW2 soldiers that come across a crashed UFO.
The only particular scene I remember is where they go inside the ship, and come across a dead body/alien sitting in a chair at a control station. One of the soldiers touches it and then pulls his arm back really quickly. The other soldier with him asks if it was hot, and he says no, it's cold.

Here's another from the 80's, I believe it was a scary movie, but perhaps it didn't turn out to be too scary. But I think it was about a creepy house, and this house had secret passages and tunnels underneath. And in the film it's revealed the reason for the tunnels is that they were used to transport or hide slaves on the run, like the underground railroad. I know my info is vague!

Last, this is also from the 80's I believe. A boy goes looking for a dinosaur in a lake or flooded mine pit or something, but it turns out to be an old crane. LOL, I know my explanations are pitiful.

Oh damn, another just came to me, remember a flick where these boys had some magic hair growing formula? And some crazy guy kidnaps the kid to cut his hair off and turn it into magic paintbrushes? LOL

I should just relive my childhood.




Does that ring any kind of a bell?
Thanks.

The third one is called "The Quest" or "Frog Dreaming" (or "Go-Kids" apparently) with Henry Thomas. I always have a hard time finding this one because I always knew it as "The Quest," but IMDB has it listed as "Frog Dreaming" for some reason.

You are all correct! Thank you very much, you guys are very good.
As for "Frog Dreaming", I remember it as "The Quest", I still remember that cover on the VHS. And it sucks that it isn't out on DVD, I'd love to see it again. I remember really loving it as a kid.

EDIT: FinkPish, I see that the last three were all you! Hehe, good job, thanks guys.
